MindChamber's News

Posted by MindChamber - 2 weeks ago


Just wanted to chime in here and say its " So far so good" for 2024. I have a bunch of projects I'm working on.

Effects for another indie game. widdling away at my Transformers Parody, a music video, roughing out the Storyboard for Unloaded 2 and finishing the still scene images for that Alloy Mod. On top of that. The Pico Pins have been a surprise hit, and I already have plans in the works to do some of the baddies of Pico's verse starting with Cassandra.

Cookie Cutter comes out today, it was the first time I did effects for a Unity game, and I am happy with the way they came out!, If you like metrodivania games with some of that Heavy metal punk vibes give it a try.

Excited to see what people think

Sup RobotHeadz, here is a list of this year's Robot Day winners.

Now remember if you didn't make the list, it doesn't mean your submission wasn't awesome, art is subjective!


It's winner's time

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Place:

Almost missed this one! A Slick puzzle game with its roots set in old school Wario woods mechanics, it has loads of charm, great art ,music, and solid control, This was fun to play and great to look at..

P.S. This is why proper tags are important when doing NG contests, I missed this one, and possibly would have saw it after my judging!


2nd Place:

Punk/ska is not my jam, but there is no denying this still slaps. The puny lyrics are on point, and the music and singing is pro quality. Plus that amazing song cover art by Daker777NG


3rd Place:

amazing Piece with a stylish face design,insane detail and lighting to the mecha bits.

I just really loved staring at this one.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Much Love to everyone who took the time to make a submission for Robot Day, like Seriously, it means a lot.


Honorable mentions:


This platformer is great, slick, and addictive, some moves can feel abit sticky at times, but it had the hallmark traits of classics like Mr. FancyPants and 'N" would love to see more of this one, maybe with a little splash of color.

awesome job.


A nicely detailed group shot of the gang, with some really pleasing colors, would make a great postcard


Great design, and concept, enjoy the TF Prime-styled design as well.


Love physical art and this one is just great. I cracked when I realized he had a face.

the hammered metal paneling really sells it


Awesome design and great use of colors


Great pixel art and animation


Super Slick work


Great job adding so many characters in there, ended up being a perfect site skin!


This one is a banger, the drops are solid, and the melodies at the end are just haunting. Please don't ever stop.


Hits all the right notes with that NES charm.


Winners send me your paypal details in pm,

losers send me your death threats.

I am totally not biased when I say this is the best Alloy animation out period..

And holie shit that sprite animation..


Seriously, seeing that intro made me feel like kid again, sitting cross-legged with a bowl of cereal, watching my Saturday morning cartoons. :*)



After you watch that killer ass intro play the damn game!!

I'm really Jonesin' for a Lorn fix..

Ive been playing their music for months now.


I want to make a playlist from NG


Are there any musicians on NG you like that hit that electronic, moody synthwave vibe?


But if anyone who links me to a song that really inspires me, will get a year sub to NG X]

Hot Damn! we got Robot Day in this year by the skin of Our synthetic membranes!

So without further ado


Art:

Winner: Robo-butcher

iu_827417_48551.webp

By PitiGameDev

"After losing multiple times due to those rogue robots, I think the scrap pile is starting to make sense. A nicely rendered piece that works good as a promo for the game!" -Syrupmasterz

"The rendering and set up is pretty good ngl" -DyingSun

"I enjoy the rustic 3d look this one has, along with it's doom-inspired posing.

It pairs for an awesome-looking piece of work."

-ProffessorDunce -


Honorable mentions:

RobotDay Figurine

Icon of Sin

Phillip


Game:

Winner Cross Strike

"Very well crafted and presented game, one that i see has potential to be a top tier arcade side scrolling shooter similar to its influence Mega Man. I want to see more." TheExtremeH

"Clearly takes influence from Megaman, and does good by this with a mostly linear gameplay experience with slight backtracking elements, that give the user a fun gameplay experience. Not bad at all." - ProffessorDunce

"A fun jump and shooter that was a blast to play! Lots of care went into the enemy and level design and the final boss was satisfying to beat, even after getting all the upgrades." - Syrupmasterz

"Well presented, crafted well, I see the potential." -TheExtremeH


Movie:

Winner The Transforming Tank-Bot

By Coco199X

"Another day, another crotch joke. I enjoyed this little short, and the 3d animation is pretty good too! They're packin' a lot more down there than what meets the eye." - ProffessorDunce 


Honorable Mentions:

Apoidea

"A cool project that was, unfortunately, a couple of days late for Robot Day. The action and the heart and soul of the project is all there though, so it just needs more in-betweens to smooth everything out, and we'd all love to see a remastered version someday!" - Syrupmasterz


Audio:

Winner

The theme of the Battlebots by Manvineo


"It might not be as metal as the 56k, but it's just as bumpin. The classic jungle drums paired with sick synths make this super nice on the ears." - ProffessorDunce

"Other songs had robotic synths or robotic elements, but with the robot effect vocals, lyrics and instrumental, BattleBots was Robot Day through and through." -SyrupMasterz


Honorable mention:

56k of Doom

"My personal favorite. It reminds me of old metal remixes I'd hear on internet videos so often years ago. The modem screeches make such an interesting use of the theme, and fit perfectly with the already pleasantly abrasive guitar." - ProffessorDunce


Comedy Audio:

Winner

Stop that

By Fersto, LuckyDee, SummerOlives, and VoicesByCorey


"Corey commits his first robot homicide" - TheDyingSun

"Even after listening to it multiple times, I still smile and chuckle as B0T and the Creator get fed up with R0. Would love to see a toon animated to this someday!" -SyrupMasterz

"The dialogue these two metal-made-meatheads prattle on about is an enjoyable back and forth. The voicework is crisp and high quality. 

Inclusion of a that's-what-she-said joke scores bonus points". - ProffessorDunce 


Honorable Mentions:

Nightmarish Bionic Giant Mechanical Spiders by Durinde


"Narration about spider-shaped amalgamations of flesh and cybernetics in an ad while pop music plays got some big laughs out of me. Well played. :P " - Syrupmasterz


Thanks again to everyone that joined, all of you were kicking the judges asses this year and making those choices even harder. Its always great to see what all of you come up with!


And of course, goes without saying, but we enjoyed all of the entries, not just the ones that won or were honorable mentions.

My favorites list got a whole lot bigger after all of the judging, and I'm looking forward to seeing what all gets followed up on, since a few different things had cliffhangers. :) -SyrupMasterz


This year Robotday almost didn't happen, so I wanted to thank @syrupmasterz and @tom for stepping up as PrizeMasters, as well as judging and for @thedyingsun, theextreamh, and proffessordunce, for all stepping up to judge and organize Robot day this year, it means a lot!


Ill be awarding 1 year subs, and getting addys in the DM for stickers and stuff.

Thanks!

Oh and I plan to have the next Robot day on our regularly scheduled day. The 26th August

See ya Next year!
